LCC Minority Outreach Program

 AFL-CIO Lawyers Coordinating Committee

Purpose: The purpose of the LCC Minority Outreach Program is to encourage law students of color to apply for summer clerkship opportunities at LCC law firms and legal departments. The outreach program seeks to introduce minority law students to the practice of law in the labor movement and to encourage them to join the ranks of union-side attorneys in the ongoing battle for social and economic justice.

Experience: During their clerkships, the students typically deal with important issues arising under a wide range of labor and employment laws, including the National Labor Relations Act, Fair Labor Standards Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Americans with Disabilities Act, Employee Retirement Income Security Act and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. Also, in recent years, as immigrant workers have played a larger role in the labor movement, many students have gained exposure to a variety of immigration-related issues.
